I've stayed here many times but I have to put finger to keyboard. The staff are the heart & soul of this motel. Under the new & experienced manager Diane my latest 3 night stay with my autistic brother was seamless. Diane , Ben & the exceptional girls were always aware of our special needs & did everything from a quick chat in the morning to "can I get you extra towels " every day. Thank you and I'll see you all in December.

We recently stayed at the Matilda Motor Inn the night before and the night after a coach trip to the Edinburgh Tattoo in Sydney. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We were unable to order a cooked breakfast for the Saturday morning (They only supply a Continental Breakfast on weekends) but the cooked breakfast on Monday was delicious.

Quiet, clean and lovely motel. Room was lovely, food at the restaurant was delicious after a long drive. Towels clean and fresh provided, staff helpful and accommodating. Didn’t use the pool but it was clean and appealing.

We had 2 nights here and had to cancel our third early, due to an accident involving a family member in Sydney.
Management was first class making the cancellation and refund a pleasant experience.
We stayed in an Executive Room (Out the back away from all noise etc) in a huge room with a King Bed which was super comfy.
All night long it was really quiet, allowing an undisturbed sleep as all walls are brick.
There are security screens on the kitchen and bathroom windows and the carpark has steel security gates which are locked at night but accessible with your card.
The restaurant served great meals (Not open weekends strangely) and Ben was a fantastic waiter.
If we are visiting Dubbo again, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This Motel was adequate and very clean, several food eateries close-by and there was a shopping mall a few blocks away. The rooms were very small and also the bathroom so it would definitely be a problem if you liked space, but then I guess you would have to upgrade.

This is my second stay and once again it was great. The service from the staff on checking in (including late check-in arrangements). The rooms are extremely clean, the bed super comfy and parking right outside your door. Couldn't ask for more. Walking distance to the RSL (6 minutes) and other dining options close by. Thank you again for a fabulous stay. I'll be back again.

This was a very excellent place to stay after our trip to the Zoo and also Burrendong Dam. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were very good and surrounded the swimming pool, all ground floor units. The dinner was a buffet with plenty of food to choose from as was the breakfast next morning. There was also a bar where you could order drinks.

Recently stayed for two nights in twin single. At $127 a night over weekend this was $50 cheaper than other nearby hotels. Rooms were clean with all amenities required including microwave. Loved the fresh milk supplied and friendly staff! Free efficient wifi also!

I have stayed previously at The Matilda for both business & leisure. Always very easy to book, with friendly staff. The Motel site is very clean (even has windscreen cleaning buckets conveniently placed) The rooms are very clean, comfortable & well equipped. The well displayed LOW noise policy makes is nice & quiet. Roomservice meal was very good,punctual & fresh. Overall great value for money.

We had comfortable, firm, warm beds. The heating system worked well on a cold night. the room was well-equipped with kettle, toaster microwave and fridge, as well as crockery and cutlery to allow some basic self-catering. It has a restaurant, but we went out to a local pub instead, so can't comment on it.

I always experience a Clean, comfy bed, good shower pressure, air conditioning/ heating that is quiet an works well. Tasty food at the restaurant, friendly staff, close to shops, kfc and maccas. Back for the third time because the rates are quite good.

Have stayed before and will always choose Matulda Motor Inn when in Dubbo. The motel is clean, quiet and popular. They have a choice of room combinations that suit both families and single travellers. Good location for walk to town but also quiet.

We stayed in the 4 bedroom cabin. It was perfect for 3 adults and 5 small children. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to shops, restaurants and very quiet. The cabin had large rooms, comfortable beds, TV in each bedroom, kitchen, laundry and small enclosed area out the back for kids to play. Pool looked lovely but too cold for us to swim in July. Would definitely recommend and will return.
Cullen2018 - Stayed July 2019, travelled with family
Stayed with 6 people in a 2 room apartment. Very well equipped kitchen and laundry. Comfy beds and 3 sofas which also could become beds. Room 1 double bed. Room 2(same apartment) double bed and 2 single beds. Beds and loungea very comfy. Also televisions in both bedrooms and loungeroom and air conditioners in all rooms. Very high recommendation and not expensive

The Matilda is not a hit and miss kind of place, you always know what you're getting. Extremely clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Perfect location. You really can't go wrong here. Also, the Fortune Kitchen Chinese restaurant next door has cheap delicious food, open late.

Seven of us stayed in the three bedroom cottage, it was lovely with plenty of room, everything in it we needed. Cleanliness was excellent. Rooms serviced daily, quiet area and great service from Jye in reception.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom “Cottage” which is at the rear of the motel. Our cottage was spacious, warm, quiet, sparkling clean and well-appointed. The reception staff were courteous and efficient. A delightful stay!

I read that this motel was a hidden gem and boy whoever wrote that was right. I booked BOTH the 3 bedroomed cottage and the 4 bedroomed cottage for myself and 9 other ladies to spend a long weekend in Dubbo to attend a Red Hat Ladies Convention. After the very long drive from Tumbarumba in our minibus and trailer we arrived to be very warmly greeted by Jye who was great. we loved being located at the rear of the property and there was plenty of room for parking. 5 of us stayed in each cottage. The cottages themselves were just beautiful, everything was perfectly neat and tidy and just pristinely clean. the age range for our group was 49 to 85 and every single lady was very very impressed with my choice of accommodation. This was in a perfect location to everything in Dubbo and within walking distance of the town and movies, shops and many eateries, of which we frequented during our visit.
All 10 of us stated that we would choose to stay with you again. Thank you so much for you hospitality. I personally loved the pool, several of my friends did not like taking a dip in the early evening in May but just perfect for me :). Thanks Queen Amanda and the Tumba Belles

The Matilda Motor Inn is newly refurbished, and a fresh and clean space. The beds are comfortable and you even have a choice of pillow. It is close to the centre of town and still quiet.
We loved the choice we made in choosing this as a place to stay.

Very comfortable rooms and the meals are great. All staff from front desk to housekeeping are very friendly and make you feel welcome. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Dubbo. Also available at this property are multi bedroom units which would be great for families travelling to the zoo.

Very comfortable and clean. One of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in in a long time. Loads of parking available and a nice pool area, unfortunately it was a bit cold to have a swim. Great location and would highly recommend this motel to those planning on hitting the town and walking to pubs and restaurants. Motel does have its own restaurant however we did not dine in.
HappyCamperx4 - Stayed May 2019, travelled with family
We stayed here for 2 nights during school holidays with our 4 boys aged between 4 and 10. We were accommodated in a 2 bedroom unit. The rooms were spacious and we appreciated the separate room for the kids. The room was impeccably clean. The bathroom was small but it is a motel! The motel is close to the Dubbo CBD. We would stay here again and would recommend it to those travelling with family.
PJ_AS_4boys - Stayed April 2019
We stayed at the Matilda Motor Inn in March 2019. Check-In was quick and easy, parking was right outside of our room and our room was clean, reasonably sized and comfortable. There was a restaurant on site and breakfast available ( which seems to be quite rare in Dubbo). In addition there were also several restaurants, take-aways and fast food options very close by.
The staff at the hotel were welcoming and friendly.
Great value for money and we would definitely stay here again.
Natalie H - Stayed March 2019, travelled with family
Quiet room away from road but the road is fairly quite anyway. We were towing a trailer and were able to drive in, parking in a double bay and drive out; not backing or difficult manoeuvring required. Range of breakfast options. Friendly, helpful staff when booking by phone and upon arrival/departure. Walking distance to a range of food options.

Friendly service and decent, clean rooms with strong hot shower. Convenient location and easy parking. Central pool is nice and well maintained, and there is an attached restaurant / bar if you don't feel like going anywhere. As above, recommended.
boingk - Stayed February 2019, travelled on business
Went in for a special dinner and was quite happy with the friendly staff and the food was very nice indeed. The entree was destroyed in no time at all, the mains were just as good. We will be heading back for a dinner again soon.
William B - Stayed February 2019, travelled as a couple
Some changes here since a year ago. A great stopover place enroute either east or west. Staff were friendly. WE rented a cabin this time, at the rear of the complex. It had a good sized king bed and a made up sofa bed, so plenty of space. The cabin also contains a kitchenette and a good sized bathroom. The A/C was quiet and effective, especially given the 40+ degree temperatures being experienced in the region at present. The large pool, partially shaded, was a welcome relief at the end of a hot day. We were happy to come back.
PLCSydney - Stayed January 2019, travelled with family
Stayed here earlier in 2018 & more than happy to return. Stayed in a Standard Room which more than suits my needs. Perfectly clean and spacious. Staff are very friendly & helpful. Unfortunately the chef is enjoying a brief, well deserved, holiday so I don't get to enjoy his perfectly cooked steak :( Will be passing through Dubbo again in 5 weeks so looking forward to my steak then :)
